Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training Day

Categories: News, Latest Academy News, Featured

Northampton Academy proudly hosted a training day in conjunction with Anti Bullying Pro, part of the Diana Award programme. Staff and students from nine Northants secondary schools attended the event, which provided students with the knowledge and knowhow to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors for their individual schools.

The day consisted of various workshops and activities and covered everything from cyberbullying to bullying in the classroom and workplace. Students were taught to recognise the signs of bullying and what to action to take if they spot someone falling victim to bullies. Students from all the schools worked together using role-play scenarios, practical sessions and by sharing their own experiences.

Schools in attendance were Northampton Academy, Montsaye Academy, Northampton International Academy, Magdalen College School, Wrenn Academy, Corby Business Academy, Prince William School, Wooton Park School, Chenderit School and Caroline Chisolm School.

Mr Clyne, Vice Principal at Northampton Academy and event organiser said, 
“At Northampton Academy, we are proud to be able to offer this vital training to staff and students as part of our 'Education with Character' initiative. We believe that education should nurture important life skills such as this. This training supports our values of Respect, Determination and Ambition, which are at the heart of everything we do.”

Northampton International Academy student Jesse said, “This training is really good, I was very happy to be chosen to represent my school. It has made me more aware of bullying and how to deal with it.” His teacher Shannon Blessyn commented, “Our students are very excited to pass on their new found knowledge to others.”

Jessie Oghenegweke from The Diana Award commented, “It was really nice to see all the young people taking bullying so seriously. They believed in the power of being kind and the impact of changing behaviours can have on the world. Their enthusiasm to take what they have learned back to their individual schools was amazing to see.”

Miss Bain added “It was a brilliant day, everyone engaged really well. It was very informative and we can’t wait to start our quest to earn our respect badge.”
